Student Change of Name
Current and former students may have need to change the name associated with their academic records to accurately reflect the name by which they are known in the larger world. Typical reasons for this may include marriage, divorce, naturalization, use of a variation of the name, etc. If you do request a change of name, we will change all of your records to reflect that new name. After we do that, your UB academic records, financial records, future academic transcripts and future diplomas will reflect the new name.
In order to request a change of name, you will need to complete the form below and provide a clear copy of acceptable documentation that accurately reflects your new name:
- Driver’s license.
- Alien registration card.
- Marriage certificate.
- Divorce decree.
- Naturalization papers.
- Court approval of name change.
- Notarized statement declaring variation of existing name, for example: “John V. Brown and J. Vernon Brown is one and the same person. For purposes of his academic records, he wishes to be known as J. Vernon Brown.”
Fields marked with an asterisk * are required.
